  • Auto App Renewal thru Apple does not Work

    Recommend go to CPh.org directly to purchase app. Can establish account and renew from there. Do Not buy through the Apple App Store.

  • Subscription renewal

    By rippedoff2018
    I received a receipt showing that I automatically paid for renewal of subscription of app but when getting on app it wanted me to pay again. I uninstalled and reinstalled and it didn’t work. I spoke with someone at CPH and they wanted to talk to someone else and contact me by email from here on out.... and I never heard back from them and the problem was never fixed...
  • Auto subscription paid, but app doesn’t update

    By Jkauc
    So I got a notice that my annual subscription was paid yesterday, but today the app doesn’t work. It is wanting me to purchase a subscription again. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling and nothing.
  • Let down

    By mommnddad
    I was very excited to see that CPH had published an app for Portals of Prayer. Upon downloading the app, I became disappointed that purchasing the app does not mean you have access to the devotions. Upon opening the app, there is a prompt to login but that process is not available when purchasing the app. Long story short, I paid for the Portals of Prayer app and now have to pay for a subscription separately. Please correct this issue or if you need to subscribe first just say so in the beginning.
  • Just Okay

    By Texas - 1970
    It's simple but I'd prefer a more soothing voice. This doesn't seem like it's going to engage anyone under 40 - POP was a staple in our house growing up, but I think this app is missing something. Perhaps someone with a smile in their voice?
  • Just like the book at church, only better!

    By Goofy1976
    Nice to have the books from the last couple years in one place and searchable. App as advertised and for less than $1 per month to get the full subscription. I am glad to support the ministry and have the daily devotions.
  • If only....

    By JohnTheMacGuy
    Paid the subscription and now all I get on my iPad Pro when I launch the app is a blank screen. I've tried deleting and redownloading the app but that failed to remedy the problem.
  • Happy this exists - suggesting some edits

    By Bloomingjoy
    I am thrilled that Portals of Prayer is now available as an app. I know some are disappointed by the subscription feature. But this is coming from a small publishing house and provides new content every single day from a variety of writers. This is one of the challenges of balancing digital and analog methods, and I don't begrudge them charging the subscription (just as they would for the print version). Many newspapers still operate this way. On to my suggestions for the publisher: I would like to see this app have some of the same features as the PrayNow app, like choices of fonts, calendar pop-up wheel, and especially night mode (causes less eye strain). Nice touch with the Bible links. Thank you for making this available.
